Originally founded primarily as a collection for academic teaching, the museum is still closely linked to the Chair of Classical Archaeology at the University of Leipzig. Future classical archaeologists learn scientific methods and basic skills by dealing with original remains from Roman, Greek and Etruscan antiquity. Through seminars and internships, as well as through extracurricular activities, students are actively involved in the scientific development of the collection and in the communication of contents to a broad public.

As student and academic assistants, students also create and deliver a wide range of culutral and historical learning experiences for different groups of visitors a well as programms for school classes.
The professorship’s staff continuously catalogues and publishes our about 12,000 originals of original ancientart as well as over 600 historical plaster casts.
